A federal jury signaled a deadlock yesterday on a remaining count in the trial of a Philadelphia investment banker accused of lying to the FBI, but then resumed deliberations and will return this morning for another effort to reach a verdict. "It appears that the jury cannot reach a unanimous verdict on Count One," the jury foreman wrote in a note before 3 p.m. to U.S. District Judge Michael M. Baylson. "Certain positions will not change based on the evidence presented. " Baylson asked the jury to try again "for some period of time" to reach a verdict in the case against Denis J. Carlson, who is accused of lying to FBI agents when they questioned him in the wide-ranging investigation into corruption in Philadelphia government.

The jury in the insurance-fraud trial of boxing promoter Don King began deliberations yesterday in New York after lawyers finished closing arguments. U.S. District Judge Lawrence McKenna instructed the jury on the law, then the jurors deliberated about an hour before going home. Earlier, the judge took the unusual step of letting the defense provide a 15-minute response to the government's rebuttal. The prosecutor was then allowed another five minutes. The additional arguments were permitted by McKenna because jurors were returning from a three-day holiday weekend, and the judge feared they were too far removed from last week's arguments to allow only a prosecutor to speak.

Defense lawyers for former State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo moved late today for an immediate halt in jury deliberations and the removal of one juror, contending that the juror posted oblique remarks on Facebook.com and Twitter.com - including one declaring, "Stay tuned for a big announcement on Monday everyone!" The petition, filed on the eve of the scheduled sixth day of deliberations in Fumo's federal corruption trial, stated that there was "substantial evidence" that the juror, who was not identified, had violated admonitions not to disclose the status of deliberations.

Whichever way federal jurors are leaning as they weigh the fate of Chaka "Chip" Fattah Jr., it may be his own words that push them over the edge. Twice Wednesday - the first full day of deliberations in his bank- and tax-fraud trial - the panel of eight men and four women asked to review evidence featuring Fattah describing to others his problems with debt and his work at a for-profit education firm. U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III sent them a transcript of a 2008 deposition Fattah gave in a lawsuit by Sun National Bank.

FEDERAL prosecutors pounded over and over to a jury yesterday that Chaka Fattah Jr. lied to get business bank loans, misspent money on designer suits and ties, filed false or no income-tax returns and bilked the Philadelphia School District out of money for kids in need. "This case is about lying, stealing and cheating," prosecutor Eric Gibson, a trial attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice, told jurors in his closing argument at Fattah's fraud trial. "Boxes of brochures, Armani suits . . . doesn't make anyone more of a businessman than sitting on a couch eating Fiesta Pizza and watching 'Law & Order' makes somebody a lawyer," Gibson said.

Two images emerged Friday of Griffin Campbell: greedy demolition contractor willing to sacrifice public safety to maximize the salvage value of the four-story building that flattened an adjacent Salvation Army store, or scapegoat taking the full weight of the tragedy that killed six people and injured 13. In his closing before a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury, defense lawyer William D. Hobson described Campbell as a simple North Philadelphia working...

If the jury of six men and six women convict Warrick of first-degree murder, it will then have to decide whether to sentence him to life in prison or to death.

The Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury weighing the case of a man who allegedly used Craigslist to lure and shoot a South Jersey man will continue deliberations Tuesday. The jury of seven women and five men deliberated for two hours Monday without reaching a verdict in the case against Thomas Coffee, 25, of Willow Grove, who allegedly listed a Yamaha Banshee all-terrain vehicle for sale as bait to rob Daniel R. Cook Jr., 27, of Williamstown, Gloucester County.

A JURY DELIBERATED for about two hours yesterday without reaching a verdict in the trial of a man accused of terrorizing and robbing four people over a two-week period in June 2013, and killing one of them.

Defendant Thomas Coffee, 25, of Willow Grove, testified last week that he had posted a Craigslist ad to sell a blue Yamaha Banshee all-terrain vehicle.
